Today is a roller coaster day. I have to go from a Birthday celebration to a funeral visitation. Two kids have soccer games, one is in a three pitch baseball tournament, and one is singing with her choir tonight. In there we also have school, meals and family time.
I can handle all the activities, I do that all the time. It's the emotional up and down's that are gonna do me in today though. It's the high to the low that'll get me; the excitement of the games, the celebrations and then the crashing down to loss and grief.
I'm not good at dealing with funeral things. Is anyone though? I mean really?
I want to be one of those people that handle these things gracefully.
I'll be fine for the Birthday stuff. I'm good with cake.
I just wish I was better at helping those who need support during sad occasions. I'll be there, I'll listen. I just won't say the right things though or worse yet, I won't know what to say that's appropriate.
I'll try though. I'll really really try.
